Hi all. I've been reading on this forum quite a bit and love how active it is. I was hoping all you experienced RVers could give my husband and me some guidance on what rig to buy. Here's our plan: We want to travel the country for at least one year with our (now) 2 year old. We are open to the idea of buying a Class C or Class A, but here are our main criteria: 1. NEEDS to have a sleeping solution for our toddler that we don't have to set up everyday (leaning towards Class C because it's more common to find bunks in those). We're also open in remodeling a closet or other space into a bunk if that's a viable option. 2. USED and under 40k, we don't mind doing cosmetic remodeling. 3. Max length 32, preferably 30' 4. CCC of at least around 2,000lbs (We found a Bigfoot that we REALLY liked, but turns out the CCC is only 455lbs) 5. double sink (or is that something that can be installed afterwards in any rig?) 6. good insulation as we plan to take it up North (but not in the midst of winter, so expecting no colder than 20 degrees at night) 7. Car seat safety - needs to have a dinette or seating that can accommodate a car seat rear-facing 8. Some counter space would be nice since we'll be cooking a lot 9. Reliability. We've been saving for this trip for quite a while and don't want to spend too much time in repair shops or broken down 10. Tow rating - needs to be able to pull a dinghy (make and model TBD after we purchase the rig) I'm hoping you can give us some guidance on any or all of the items we need! Please let us know what you think what brands/models to look for and which ones to avoid! Also, I'm not sure what age is "too old" for a used unit that we need to Thank you and happy travels!
Just saw a report of a toddler falling out of a moving fifth wheel in Helena Montana when the rig was making a left turn near Costco. The news report showed several other children who had apparently also been traveling in the trailer milling around the scene. The truck towing it wasn't even a crew cab, so I don't know if the entire family could have ridden in the tow vehicle. It certainly seems dangerous and, to me, irresponsible to have passengers in a towed vehicle. Just hope the little one isn't seriously injured and recovers. Please, don't let anyone travel back there!
